Fringe and Suede

August 10, 2015

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. If you follow me on Snapchat (straightastyle), you already know Russ and I went with my parents to a demolition derby. It was really fun and a total cultural experience in small town Oklahoma.

This fringe and suede outfit feels really me: trendy but not too dressy, a little edge but not grunge, neutral, and non-girly. Since I love my denim skirt so much, I had been eyeing its suede counterpart. When this Topshop version was part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I took the plunge. It’s the only thing I bought, and I love it. (Sidenote: Wow, who knew that was such a big thing in the blogging world?!). The skirt is real suede and very nice quality (more budget friendly option here). I loved the rust color. I think these will continue to be a big trend for the fall, and I can’t wait to wear mine with a sweater. This Forever21 fringe top made the perfect pairing. I had been on the hunt for a fringe top like this since seeing a more expensive version on several of the bigger bloggers I admire. At only $17, this one fits the bill for me.

    Isn’t it awesome how every single item from this fun and edgy-bohemian outfit is still very much IN for Summer 2016. I just love the laceup booties and that skirt. And I own an almost identical top from Zara that I need to wear ASAP. Thanks for the reminder lol.

    I don’t normally wear or think about suede in the summer, but you’ve TOTALLY made it work with that shade of suede and the breezy, light and airy fringe top! LOVE!

    Love the fringe top. You’ve inspired me to check out Forever 21 next time I’m at the mall.

    I have no idea what a demolition derby is but it sounds awesome. In my mind I’m basically picturing a carnival where people get to destroy things for fun…. Which is probably not what it is in reality lol. This topshop skirt is so cute! I’m bummed I didn’t pick it up in the sale. I think the reason it’s so popular on the blogosphere is that it’s a peak time for affiliate link $$ 😉

      Basically people buy total junker cars, make sure they run, and then ram them into each other in an arena. The last car running wins. It was hysterical! One lost a wheel and kept going for a little while. The drivers get totally into it.
